Students from Les Landes School, the Jersey Field Squadron and the island's cadet organisations had the chance to meet Jersey's Lieutenant Governor this weekend during a visit to the Commonwealth War Graves.

His Excellency Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton placed poppy crosses on the graves of fallen soldiers at St Ouen's Parish Church as part of this year's Remembrance commemorations.

Sir Stephen says it's important for young people to be aware of the sacrifices made for their futures.
